Oak Forest Athletic Philosophy

The overall program of interscholastic athletics at Oak Forest High School is a fundamental component of the total educational structure.  While competitiveness is desired, our primary objective as educators is to help our student-athletes acquire important skills that will help them to be successful in their adult lives.

Oak Forest Coaches Personal Philosophy

As coaches, we center our focus on the process of winning, not just winning.

Together, coaches and athletes in a productive athletic department should project an image of courteous competitors who embrace challenge, enjoy the progression, win with modesty, handle defeat with poise, and promote their sport.

Coaches continually strive to serve as positive role models who display a depth of knowledge in their respective sport and strive to continue to learn throughout their whole career.  Great coaches are those who show strong leadership, ethical behavior and a comprehensive approach in developing their athletes.
